Okay, so I know there are probably a million of these, but I decided to write down an idea I had while geeking out with my sister.
Slenderman. A name that makes you blush because of your obscene, sick fantasies or makes a chill crawl through your spine. But... Has anyone ever considered that maybe he isn't that bad guy?
Here me out, people, because I know about half of you are already exiting this page. Your probably thinking something along the lines of... "Slenderman? A hero? Go to hell, fan girl- No, wait! Hell's to good for you. Rot in purgatory, bitch."
Okay, your opinion is noted and I'll try to change it by finishing this.
The suicide rate for teenagers has been steadily increasing for a while now, and most of these deaths are of seventeen-year-olds.
Seventeen years of age plus Slenderman. Why does that ring a bell...? Oh yes! The age of his proxies.
This is again, just a theory, but what if Slenderman takes children and proxies to provide an alternate route. Madness.
It may be a little extreme, but your already more than a little mentally unstable if your contemplating suicide, so he may just twist their minds a little bit so they take on a murderous edge rather than a suicidal one.
More people in the process are dying, but Slendy has and always will be a little on the malevolent side!
